The Trust works to develop, implement and promote ‘life chance indicators’, which measure a child’s development against the factors which are predictive of future outcomes.  The ultimate aim is to chart the development of individual children at three stages up to when they start school at 4-5 years, in a Reception or Foundation Stage 2 class. These indicators will play a key role in driving policy and incentivising a focus on improving children’s life chances in the long term.
